Mr X is back!
Round 1, 2014
Isn’t it great to have the footy back !!!!
Round one has historically been a nightmare for the average punter , often teams that you don’t expect, do something completely out of the ordinary , for example Parramatta beat the Warriors by 40 in the first round last year yet as we expected , it was shown later not to be the real form.
Having said that we are not here to get splinters sitting on fences we are here to try and find a little earn whilst watching the greatest game of all.
Round One Bonanza.
I have settled on 4 investments which I feel will a nice conservative way to start 2014.
- Rabbitohs Vs Rooster. Under 38.5 points in the match @ 1.85.
Both teams will be primed for a big start to the season and there will be fierce forward clashes here but both defences are excellent and I just don’t see either team scoring much more than 20 points.
- Penrith Vs Newcastle. Either team to win 1-12 @ $1.60.
This game to my eye looks very evenly matched and I can’t see one side or the other running away with this so early in the season.
- Manly Vs Melbourne. Manly to win @ $1.57.
The loss of Cooper Kronk is enormous for the Storm and unfortunately the backup cavalry are just not of the same standard and they are facing Cherry-Evans & Foran who are simply the games benchmark.
- Cowboys Vs Canberra. Cowboys to win by 7 or more @ $1.60.
Cowboys are traditionally good at home , Raiders are traditionally bad away, Both teams with new coaches but Cowboys have a fantastic roster and will be primed to show Paul Green what they can do.
That 4 leg mutli comes to $ 7.44 or $148.80 for $20. Good way to start the year.
Smithy has given me $50 to invest each week and I am to show a progressive total after each round.
My Bets this week with the $50 are :-
- $20 4 leg multi as above.
- $15 Under 38.5 points Rabbits Vs Roosters ( return $27.75)
- $15 Double Manly to win into Cowboys -6.5 ( return $37.65)
Good luck and enjoy the footy…. MR X.
